Boys attending UAE public schools will now be able to decide whether to wear their uniform or the country’s national dress (Kandora).

In a series of tweets, the Emirates Schools Establishment (ESE) said it will provide the option in the second and third cycles for students from fifth grade.

The move is based on suggestions from parents and to build on the national identity among its student community. 

The authority elaborated that Kandora with Al Hamdaniya will be available for boys in the third cycle.

It will be rolled out next week, and be made mandatory for the next academic year.

Sarah bint Youssef Al Amiri, Minister of State for Public Education and Advanced Technology, and Chairperson of the Emirates School Education Foundation, said the move aims to “emphasize the importance of consolidating national values ​​in the educational field, and strengthening the process of partnership with parents”.

The ESE added that it will collaborate with school representatives and Emirati designers while designing and choosing school uniforms in the future.
